Warning to those about to buy portal 2 for steam
community maps only works parts of each day due to unfixed error.You might need to wait 5 hours to 5 minutes anywhere in the middle

To know when the community maps work hit single player and load random map and when you stop getting the endless loading screen then all community works.You will need to keep coming back because it will stop searching and you need to re press the search button

I have 3 computers and same problem on all of them AND my friend has computer and his own copy of portal 2 a few roads down from my house and he has this same problem and all fixs patchs verify's reinstalls even changing internet companys do not fix this problem.Its just portal 2's not programmed good enough

ALSO sometimes when you customize your robots they do not show for either person ingame



I had to wait 8 FAQWQWin hours this time to do a portal puzzle with my friend and i wanted to post complaints but i knew it would receive a negitive respondes and so i put it in a form of a HELPFUL warning for people who want to enjoy the endless community maps to avoid this is if this flaw is to big for them.If i did not allready own portal and knew this ahead of time i would not have bought it even on the 75% off sale

This is new, never heard of such problem nor had this problem, I think.
The problem would seem to be from steams side, not the games. Though don't know why.

You should sent a ticket to support.

Questions:
Does this happen with co-op maps only or singleplayer as well?
Does this happen to the newly posted maps or to old posted maps as well?
Does other steam games have good connection?

They might explain what is going on.
This problem isn't common (hardly any threads about this) and it more looks like a steam thing.

I'm not having any problems playing workshop maps. Also, saying yes to an answer you can't answer yes on is not smart.
